Sioux Falls, S.D.-based Raven Industries announced in a May 20 press release the launch of a new flexible geomembrane product line designed to provide containment solutions for the energy and environmental sectors.
Produced by the company’s Engineered Films Division, HydraFlex Containment Solutions is the newest addition to the Raven product line and includes several targeted geomembranes designed for specific project attributes, according to the release.
All HydraFlex products are available in master rolls or large prefabricated one-piece panels, manufactured in a factory-controlled environment up to 8,000 lbs. per panel with a sealing window for ease in field installations.
The press release described the HydraFlex Ultra HU-Series: geomembranes are produced with flexible linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) resin to provide elongation, tensile, and impact strengths.
The release noted that HydraFlex Ultra is formulated to meet or exceed the requirements of GRI–GM17 standard specification for LLDPE geomembranes. It is recommended for use in containment applications requiring outdoor longevity, chemical resistance, and durability, including use in cold weather environments. It is also designed for flexibility, conforming to uneven surfaces, and performing well in applications such as fish-safe requirements for aquaculture and coal-ash impoundment capping for the solid waste market, according to the release.
